Genk reject €10m bid from Rennes for Jhon Lucumi

Belgian club Genk have rejected a €10m bid from Rennes for Colombia defender Jhon Lucumi, L’Equipe reports.

The Ligue 1 side submitted an offer for left-footed centre-back Lucumi, 22, earlier in the week.

However, they will need to improve their proposal with Genk snubbing a bid of ‘just over’ €10m.

Rennes have failed in attempts to sign defenders Tanguy Kouassi and Mohammed Salisu and Lucumi is next on their list.

Genk want to keep Lucumi, who signed from Deportivo Cali in 2018, for at least another year.

Sevilla and Southampton have also expressed interest in Lucumi, a highly-rated Colombian international.

Lucumi made 22 appearances in Jupiler Pro League this season and a further six in the UEFA Champions League for Genk.

Rennes want one or two new defenders after losing Joris Gnagnon (returning to Sevilla after a loan) and Jeremy Morel (end of contract).
